It makes me proud.
According to The Times Online
BRITISH consumers are nothing if not robust. Tell them that a certain food is so laden with carcinogens that they should eat it no more than three times a year, and they rush out to buy it by the trolleyful.
In the wake of last week's US report accusing Scottish farmed salmon of being stuffed to the gills with pollutant chemicals, supermarket chains were pleasantly surprised to find it leaping off the shelves at the weekend, and some Scottish producers found that orders and inquiries had gone through the roof.
Asda yesterday reported a 20 per cent increase in all its salmon ranges. "We saw this massive leap on Friday when the report was published."
Sainsbury's also reported an increase of some 10 per cent on salmon products, while Safeway said that salmon sales had gone up "significantly".
Now that is the way to treat stupid health scares, maybe one day the bogusmongers will shut up if we keep treating them with the contempt they deserve!
